  • Bolt Size For Draw Tite Hitch Receiver On 2021 Fenesis GV80
  • The bolts that come in the mounting hardware are M12x1.25x40. I suggest cleaning out the threads with some WD40 and a wire brush like Counteract Wire Cleaning Brush for Valve Stem Mounting Holes - 10.7 mm # CA89FR or a Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" # 814092. Being a 2021 Genesis GV80 I wouldn't expect the frame to be super corroded or rusted but depending on where the vehicle has been it could happen. You may need a Tap and Die Set - Metric - NC, NF, and NPT Sizes - 40 Pieces # PT43FR to...

  • Will Counteract Filtered Tire Valve Core Work With Equal Flexx Tire Balancing Beads
  • The Counteract Filtered Tire Valve Core, # CA38FR is a step up from the # CA26FR. Each option replaces your existing tire valve core to work in conjunction with Counteract tire balancing beads. The Equal Flexx product is not a balancing bead, it is a granular polymer compound. The concept is similar, but it is different. The Counteract tire valve cores are designed for their products, per the manufacturer, they should not be used with a different product line.

  • Will the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Trailer Tire Work On Wheel With 50 PSI Rating
  • In regards to trailer wheels, the psi limit is actually from the valve stem not the wheel itself. Therefore, you can use the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer part # 724861519 which is what I recommend if you change out the valve stem for the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906.

  • Do Trailer Wheels Have a PSI Rating
  • In regards to a trailer wheel and tire assembly, the psi rating comes from the trailer tire and valve stem. Therefore, if the psi rating of the valve stem exceeds that of the trailer tire you will not have any issues. The trailer wheel itself does not have any sort of psi rating. The highest rated valve stem we offer is the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 which is rated for over 100 psi.

  • When loading a higher rated trailer tire onto a trailer wheel as long as you stay within the lower of the two's weight rating and the psi rating of the wheel's valve stem you'll be fine. So you need to determine the psi of your valve stems. First of all if they're metal they're gonig to be rated for over 100 psi. As a rule of thumb if they're rubber and the threads go all the way to the rubber of the stem then they're rated up to 65 psi. If there is metal between the threads and the...

If your valve stem has the rubber all the way up to the threads, like part # AM20903, then it will be rated around 65 psi. If there is some reinforcement between the rubber and the threads, like part # AM20904 or # AM20907, then your valve stem can be rated between 80 and 100 psi. The only valve stems that are rated...

  • What PSI Should I Inflate My Tires To
  • Trailer tires should always be inflated to their maximum psi when the tires are cold. Running your tires at anything other than 80 psi will change the capacity of the tire to some unknown amount and can also cause the tire to heat up faster than it should which is what often causes tire failure. You also need to make sure your wheels are rated up to 80 psi. This is usually dependent on the valve stem. If you need new stems rated up to 80 psi use part # AM20904.

  • Should Trailer Tires Run with 10 Less psi During the Summer
  • There are 2 common misconceptions about trailer tires that can definitely lead to blow outs. The first is to fill the tires to the psi listing on the trailer instead of on the sidewall of the tire, and the second is to reduce or increase the air pressure. Both of these are incorrect and can/will lead to tire failure. When filling up your trailer tires you want to make sure they are cold (after the trailer has been sitting overnight) and then fill them to the psi rating on the sidewall....

  • Can Trailer Tires with Load Range C be Replaced by Tires with Load Range E
  • Trailer tires should also be inflated (while cold) to the maximum psi listed for the tire. Using them over or under inflated will cause them to heat up faster and increase the chance of failure. It is likely your tires with load range E should be inflated to 80 psi but go by what it says on the tire. The entire weight capacity will be limited by the lowest rated component. So just because your tires have the higher rating doesn't mean everything else does. But using the higher rated...

Although some wheels may have a "weight rating", they are really rated for whatever size tire fits on them. The weight rating of a wheel is actually tied to the type of valve stem it has. If the valve stem is rated for a lower psi rating then the "weight rating" of the wheel will be lower.

  • Do I Have To Buy New Wheels To Accommodate A 110 PSI Tire?
  • Typically the limiting factor on a trailer rim when it comes to tire pressure is the valve stem used on the wheel. Sometimes you can still find the air pressure rating printed on the rim or in the owners manual. Some trailers have a plate on the trailer frame near the coupler that has the PSI, VIN, axle capacities, as well as the trailer tire size and Load Range recommended. If you can confirm that the wheels you have on your trailer can accommodate tire pressure of 110 and G rated...

  • Will HWT Wheels Work With Tires Rated For 80 PSI?
  • Most wheels (rims) are not rated for psi as in this case, so the tires and valve stems are the limiting factor. You will not have any issue with 80 psi tires on the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series S5 Trailer Wheel as long as you are using the correct valve stem. I recommend the Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long - Up to 100 psi # AM20907.

  • Can 15 inch Aluminum Trailer Wheels Handle 80 psi
  • Yes, your Dexstar wheel can handle the 80 psi requirement of your new tires. If there was anything in your tire/wheel setup that might not handle 80 psi it would actually be the valve stems which you could pretty easily swap with the part # AM20906 which can handle over 100 psi and fits the standard trailer wheel valve stem holes.

  • How to Tighten the Americana Valve Stem
  • To tighten the stem you will need to tighten it down until the rubber grommet flattens out to where it is flush with the washer provided with the valve stem. This will create a good seal without over-tightening the rubber grommet. Once it is installed and you are using your trailer, make sure you monitor the tire pressure closely to make sure there are no leaks. Leaks rarely occur when you tighten the grommet down in the way I described, but make sure you monitor the stems anyway. I...

  • Is Trailer Wheel PSI Capacity The Valve Stem, & Valve Stem For Over 100 PSI

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wheels Leaking After Installing Larger 12 Ply 100 PSI Tires
  • I believe your issue with the larger load rated tires is the psi. It is not too large for the wheels, but it is likely it is too much for your valve stems. You most likely have valve stems like # AM20904 rated for up to 80 psi, and the larger load tires are just too much causing a leak. I recommend upgrading your valve stems to the # AM20906 which are rated for the higher psi tires.

  • Is a Metal Valve Stem Going to Help Prevent Valve Stem Failure
  • Going to a heavier duty valve stem certainly wouldn't hurt. The best way to prevent failure though is to be sure to use the proper air pressure in the tire.

This is the only metal one we carry.

  • Can Rims for 205/75-14 Sized Tires Handle 65 PSI if Increasing to 215/75-14 Sized Tires

A 205/75 R14 tire can be on a rim as small as 5 inches but the larger tire can't go any smaller than 5-1/2. So measure the width of the rim from where the tire touches it and make sure it's wide enough. Chances are the rim can handle the 65 psi. It's actually the valve stem of the wheel that determines if it can handle the psi or not and most stems are rated to at least 65 psi. If yours isn't,...

We have part # AM20906 rated up to 200 psi and fits both the 0.625 and 0.453 size holes. Generally, larger trailer wheels, 16 inches and over, have a .625 inch hole.
